The world you live is in a process of continual change. That is how it has been and will be until the great transformation takes place at the return of Christ. The unfortunate factor from the moral and spiritual situation, in the non-Christian society, the change is for the worse. But where Christ reigns and has perfect control, He brings alteration always for the better. He has worked in and on you daily basis to create and produce a wholesome person that exercises gifts of a choice quality that in turn brings vital amendment to all around. As you improve, the constant input of His grace and goodness so you will make noteworthy impact on people that need to come to know, believe and love Him. Let him further live and stir within you now those things that will regenerate and elevate and make you more effective for Him.


One of the most moving and challenging hymns that used to be sung after a challenging message on consecration and commitment was the famous one written by Frances Ridlaey Havergal. She wrote – 1/.Take my life and leyt it be – consecrated, Lord to Thee; Take my moments and my days, Let them flow in ceaseless praise. 5/. Take my will and make it Thine, it shall be no longer mine: Take my heart it  is Thine own; It shall be Thy royal throne. 6/. Take my love; my Lord I pour – at Thy feet its treasure stor; Take myself, and I will be – Ever only, all for Thee”. In times past, I have found myself with countless others at the front of gatherings making the great response. Long may it continue!

Frances Ridely Havergal (1836-1879) has provided us with one of the classic hymns of Christian commitment.
Known as the “consecration poet,” Havergal attempted to live a life fully consecrated to Christ and to those she saw in any physical or spiritual need.

We have an account in her own words concerning the composition of “Take My Life” in 1874.
“I went for a little visit of five days [to Areley House]. There were ten persons in the house, some unconverted and long prayed for, some converted, but not rejoicing Christians. He gave me the prayer, “Lord, give me all in this house!” And He just did. Before I left the house every one had got a blessing. The last night of my visit after I had retired, the governess asked me to go to the two daughters. They were crying, etc.; then and there both of them trusted and rejoiced; it was nearly midnight. I was too happy to sleep, and passed most of the night in praise and renewal of my own consecration; and these little couplets formed themselves, and chimed in my heart one after another till they finished with ‘Ever, Only, ALL for Thee!'”

CHRIST’S POWER AND WISDOM – Matthew  12: 38-50

Christ always knew how to answer those who came to question Him as to His identity. The Pharisees in their hypocrisy sought a sign from Christ but it was not a genuine inquiry of the heart because they had no intentions of accepting Him or of placing their faith in Him, and Christ knew it. If they would examine what was truly occurring without bias and pretence they would have been certain of His credentials as the Messiah and the Son of God.

He did however reply in a positive fashion and affirm they would eventually get the biggest sign of all in His personal resurrection from the dead. No one would be able to entertain any doubts because He would give a memorable, indisputable proof of His person and power by vacating the tomb. The day would not be too far ahead that they would have all the evidence any one would require to place their faith in Him. Jonah was amazingly delivered out of the fish’s belly after three days, so with Christ from the grave. As they listened to Christ, they should have discovered like the queen of Sheba of old with regard to Solomon, He was greater and was the fount of all wisdom. In consequence, it demanded their faith in Him.

You do not have to look to anyone but Christ today. He is the perfect answer to all you require. Both His power and wisdom are infinite and so unlimited. In the knowledge that He is risen from the dead, and is alive and with you, should assure you of wondrous possibilities regarding your life and prospects today. You are in a better position than the queen of Sheba, you can discover He will solve those questions for you in and throughout your earthly pilgrimage
